IGC Pharma (NYSE American: IGC) is collaborating with the Los Andes University Center for Research and Training in Artificial Intelligence (“CINFONIA”) in a partnership designed to leverage generative artificial intelligence (“AI”) to analyze variations in disease signatures among patients. The collaboration will provide key data to help identify individuals more likely to respond to treatment. IGC is slated to discuss the partnership along with its key initiatives at Biotech Showcase 2024. The partnership will involve the two companies working together to develop and train deep-learning algorithms based on state-of-the-art transformer architectures. The algorithms will be key in predicting the temporal progression of approximately 1,500 physiological and psychological variables for each patient enrolled in IGC’s IGC-AD1 phase 2 clinical trial. According to the announcement, the deep-learning algorithms have potential to reveal hidden relationships in clinical trial data that cannot be identified through manual analysis alone, possibly resulting in improvement of the treatment efficacy of IGC-AD1 and providing relief to millions of people suffering with Alzheimer’s. Led by Professor Pablo Arbelaez, CINFONIA brings together academic excellence, ethical principles and responsible research as the center focuses on transforming the world with AI for the benefit of humanity.
“Often Alzheimer’s patients face years of uncertainty and delayed definitive diagnosis, potentially resulting in the worsening of their condition,” said IGC Pharma CEO Ram Mukunda in the press release. “The implications of AI integration are profound, as it can help reduce risk in costly clinical trials and potentially get medicine to Alzheimer’s patients faster. We believe this partnership provides IGC Pharma with a competitive advantage in the pharmaceutical industry as implementing AI algorithms may enable us to identify and understand previously unknown patterns in data sets. We eagerly anticipate showcasing our strategic approach at Biotech Showcase 2024 during JP Morgan Healthcare Week, spotlighting IGC Pharma’s strides in AI development.”
